Study on energy efficiency and energy saving potential in industry and on possible policy mechanisms

January 2016

The study evaluated eight energy intensive industrial sector groups, and four tertiary sector groups. A detailed bottom-up modelling assessment of the energy consumption trends and energy saving potential through 2050 of the eight industrial sectors was conducted. For the tertiary sectors, due to data limitations, a high-level summary of energy use profiles, energy saving opportunities, implementation barriers and policy options is presented based on literature review.
